ORH 2016 - Mission Report Back
The last operation is over. For all, an exhausting week. In all 88 operations were performed in this single week. Many of the children require at lease one if not more operations to deal with the effects of their disfigurement.
We would like to thank all members of the mission for their engagement and support. Specialist plastic surgeons from Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Abu Dhabi work together. When the entire team has the same objective, the in a short time, excellent and professional work can be expected.
We are able to provide children under our care, with new hope for the future. With the reconstruction of their lip and/or palate, the children have the opportunity to communicate better, to eat, and drink in a normal fashion and are less stigmatised in the community.
We as team are most thankful to have provided the children with a confident smile for the future and leave them full of hope.
We would like to thank once again, all sponsors, all supporting clinics, partners and friends for their involvement and support for this mission, without which all of this would not have been possible.
We hope, that reading our daily bulletins, you have a clearer idea of our work in Paranaque, Manilla and have developed a sense of empathy with the patients who are our core business.
